“Prouvost’s work is messy, funny, and playful, but it is also always serious.” —Art Newspaper
For this world premiere, inquisitive French-born conceptual artist Laure Prouvost presents her first major production for the stage. The winner of the 2013 Turner Prize, Prouvost is known for weaving together fiction and fact to create complex and humorous stories that challenge the ways we create our own life histories. Expect an unpredictable yet thoroughly charming experimental mash-up of video work, dance, immersive stage décor, and choral music. Prouvost is joined by artist Sam Belinfante, renowned dance artist Pierre Droulers—one of Belgium and France’s leading choreographers—and musicians from Minnesota and New York.
Presented as part of the Walker exhibition Laure Prouvost (October 12, 2017–February 11, 2018).
